Living the Dream

"Family saved and restored: 

TJ has been in the prison system since he was 14. That was 20 years ago. Recently he gave his life to Christ and began praying for his two sisters. They both came to chapel and themselves responded to the chaplain's invitation to meet Christ.

Another inmate has known Christ for two and a half years. He came from a highly dysfunctional and abusive family. He felt he needed to tell his mom that he forgave her. The next phone call he had with her, he told her all he forgave her for. She began to cry. He said, "If I can change, you can too." 

Since then he is seeing more of his family restored in relationship with him and with Christ. TJ and Thomas, Huntsville Prison, TX via Charlie Owens (7.13)"

"Slipped Disc's Healed During Sales Call:

Door to door cable TV salesman encounters lady who is bent over with slipped discs. He offers to pray for her. As he put his hand on her back instantly disc popped into place and all pain left. She is able to stand up and bend/touch her toes and overwhelmed with goodness of God. Tim Walls, Redding, CA (3/12)"

"Health Insurance Refers Cancer Patient to Bethel Healing Rooms:

After a visit to her doctor and testing, a local woman (non-believer) was diagnosed with breast cancer. When she called her insurance company, her representative noticed that she lived near Redding, CA. The female insurance company representative told her about Bethel's healing rooms and said, "Off the record, if I would be you, I wouldn't walk to this place, I would run." via Lukas Schmid, Bethel Healing Rooms (2.14)"
